Paul Ryan is pictured here as prom king in 1988. While in high school, Ryan delivered pizzas for SeƱor Pizza and spent summers mowing lawns to save up for a telescope. (That is, until he made a deal with popular cheerleader Cindy Mancini wherein he would pay her $1,000 so she could purchase a new suede outfit and she would pretend to be his girlfriend.)

Watch this now.

In the clip from “Saturday Night Live” below, Harry Shearer and Martin Short play a pair of men’s synchronized swimmers. Christopher Guest plays their coach.

It is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

I recall first seeing the sketch in the late 80s or early 90s and I have searched for it ever since. Thankfully, somebody has uploaded it to Google Video (whatever that is) and at long last this treasure of mockumentarian comedy is viewable on demand.

H.L. Mencken Quote of the Day

without comments

What I admire most in any man is a serene spirit, a steady freedom from moral indignation, an all-embracing tolerance — in brief, what is commonly called good sportsmanship. Such a man … is frequently an eager gladiator, vastly enjoying opposition. But … he carefully guards his amour-propre by assuming that his opponent is as decent a man as he is, and just as honest — and perhaps, after all, right.

Smug Brit Glibly Summarizes America

without comments

In this segment from “Stephen Fry in America,” the foppish English actor writer gains field access to the Auburn-Alabama football game:

Fry’s litany of contradictory adjectives doesn’t encapsulate America; it demonstrates only that– even if America could be defined– the patronizing pedant Stephen Fry is not the one to do it.

Machine 1, Rage 0

with one comment

I had a random, vague recollection of Serj Tankian making very silly faces in the music video for “Empty Walls.” (Tankian was the lead vocalist for the hyper-leftist, largely unlistenable nu metal band System of a Down.) I searched for the video on YouTube and was delighted to discover that Serj is hawking my favorite sandwich spread:

Serj wants you to know that he thinks you are a conformist zombie. And also that Kraft Mayo with olive oil now has cracked pepper!

I never made it to Serj’s silly faces because I couldn’t help wondering whether the Marxist revolutionaries of Rage Against The Machine had anything else to sell me…

Turns out they had at least 4 things to sell me.

"Never Neutral"? I guess that kind of works...

Busch Stadium has priciest beer in NL? Not really. But maybe.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch published this headline. Seriously.
